  • Small Size
  • Proximity to home/ job
  • Personal attention from faculty
  • Student received the most aid or scholarships from Albertus.

2. What aspects of our College culture hinder us from moving forward?

  • Security.  The sense that commuters have is that the campus is not totally safe, not private, they do not feel confident with the current security measures/staff.  
  • Dining Services. Food is too costly and not worth the price paid.  
  • ITS services are not well communicated, change is too sudden and not thoroughly explained.
  • Tutoring Centers need to include more academic subjects.
  • Need better and more frequent campus events / activities.

3. If you were going to give 2 million dollars to the College what would you give it for?

  • Updates and renovations to Aquinas and dorms.
  • More or better space for commuters including something like lockers or a lounge for personal storage.  More accommodations, like quick meals or an open Coffee Bar during the day.
  • Scholarships and Financial Aid.
  • More facilities for the arts, including theater.  
  • Enhancing the tutoring centers/ programs.
  • New security company to make this a private campus.
